Using The VII Foundation exhibition, MONUMENTAL: The Dome of the Rock by Ziyah Gafić and Notre-Dame de Paris by Tomas van Houtryve, as a launch pad, this discussion will feature presentations on photography’s history and politics of representation in France and Israel/Palestine.

Taking a step back from these places in the present, this panel will explore how particular understandings of faith, identity, colonialism, and nationalism have been enabled by visual symbols.

This event takes place at The Alexandra Boulat Campus in Arles, France, on Friday, July 5th, 2024, starting at 15:00 CET (11:00 EDT). You can attend in-person, or online. Please register via the link on this page to receive the login information for the online streaming. Entrance is free.
